Family Grants

At Liver Kids, we know that having a child in hospital can place additional financial strain on families. To provide a little support to some of our members, we have initiated the Liver Kids Family Grants scheme and will provide a limited number of grants each year for families in need.

The grants of up to $500 will be released when we have funding available. Families will need to meet some basic eligibility criteria and submit an application form together with a letter of support from their hospital social worker. Applications can be forwarded at any time, we will contact you as soon as we can to let you know whether funds are available and whether your application has been successful.

If you would like more information about the Family Grants, please contact us at

Terms and Conditions of Family Grants

To be eligible to apply for a grant, families will:

a)      Have a child who has been diagnosed with liver disease.

b)      Have been on an uninterrupted hospital admission for a minimum of one (1) month.

c)      Provide a letter of support from the hospital social worker that provides dates of admission in support of ‘b’ above.

d)      Be members of Liver Kids Australia Inc.

While applications can be made at any time, only a limited number of grants will be available in any one year. Applicants will be informed as soon as possible regarding the status of their application.

Where there are more applicants for a grant than available funds, preference will be given to families who live more than sixty (60) kilometres from the hospital where their child has been admitted.

Any family is only eligible for one (1) grant from Liver Kids Australia Inc.

All grants are at the discretion of the Committee of Liver Kids Australia Inc. The decision of the Committee in relation to the allocation of grants is final.
